7:01 am
last words and katy perry remembers amy winehouse. savage attack. the daring rescue of seven teens in an alaska wilderness school. victims speak out about what really happened. good morning, everyone. look who's back. hope you had a great time. >> we had a fantastic vacation. it's good to be back. coming back to this bombshell interview that you have. the woman who accused dominique strauss-kahn of sexual assault. she spoke out to her. i was riding back into town last night, everyone in town wanted to know, what is she like? >> that's part of the reason she came forward.
7:02 am
as prosecutors are still weighing whether or not to proceed with this case, the women giving her side for the first time. it's an unusual and risky move. this morning, we're finally meeting the maid that remain quiet. >> he came to me and grabbed my brea breasts. no, you don't have to be sorry. i don't want to lose my job. >> reporter: the woman at the center of the case now reveals herself to the world. her name is nafissatou diallo. nafi for short. a 32-year-old hotel maid and in her first television interview, nafi recalls when she was sexually assaulted by dominique strauss-kahn, at the time the
7:03 am
head of the imf. >> stop this, stop this. but he kept pushing me and pushing me through the hallway. keep pushing me. i was so afraid. i was so scared. >> had you seen dominique strauss-kahn before that day? >> i had never seen him before. >> when did you realize that he was one of the most powerful woman men in the world? >> he's going to be the next president of france. i said, oh, my god. i was crying. they're going to kill me. i'm going to die. >> why did you think that? >> because that was in my conscience. he's a powerful man like that. >> prosecutors initially believe
7:04 am
nafi, now the case said that the case has weakened because she's been untrue about her personal relationships. strauss-kahn strongly denies all charges, pleaded guilty and was released from house arrest. naf circumstance not backing down. catching both the defense and prosecution by surprise. what do you want. >> i want justice. i want him to go to jail. i want him to mow that you cannot use your power when you do something like this. >> reporter: in days, her lawyer plans to file a civil suit. going directly after their allegations. >> there's no mystery or hiding the fact. >> reporter: for nafi who has a 15-year-old daughter, it's not just about defending her story but her reputation as well. new york post headlines calling her a "hooker."
7:05 am
are you a prostitute? >> i am not. i have never been called that since i was born. god is my witness. i'm telling the truth from my heart. god knows that. >> for more now, we bring in christopher dickey, his print interview, exclusive print interview with nafissatou diallo is running today. and gma legal analyst dan abrams. christopher, you had quite a bit of time that you spent with nafi, your overall impressions in. >> my overall impression when she talks about the alleged incident she's very convincing. when she's talking about some aspect of her past, it seems a little vague. fishing around for what to say. but on balance, i found her a convincing witness. >> did she with you continue to say that i didn't want to lose my job? >> absolutely.
7:06 am
i think you have to see what she's saying in the context of her fear of losing her job. she comes from a poor village in a very poor country. she mangaged to get this job. she's trying to raise her child, her 15-year-old daughter by herself. if she loses that job, everything could collapse. fear of losing the job -- i think the whole incident turns on that. >> dan, this is highly unusual to come forward like this. and dominique strauss-kahn's attorneys aren't pleased whatsoever. they released a statement, ms. diallo is the first accuser. >> i don't know if it would be a fatal blow. but this is a one of a kind
7:07 am
situation where you have an accuser in a sexual assault case coming forward at the prosecutor making the decision on whether to move forward. the prosecutors made it pretty clear they aren't going to move forward. they believe, according to a letter they sent to defense, that she lied to the grand jury and more importantly to them in the context in the investigation. they're making it clear, we don't intend to move forward with this case. her lawyers may have felt that they had no other choice to keep this case alive, other than put to public pressure on the prosecution to move forward. >> prosecution saying they're not going to comment on a pending case. i saw the letter that was sent to the judge and to the defense attorneys and some of the inconsistencies and part of it what happened or did not happened after the attack,
7:08 am
christopher, in going back to work as she did. >> two questions in that letter that are raised. things that she did before this incident, tax returns, her asylum request. only one inconsistency they talked about that has to do with the incident itself. in the letter, it said that she went and cleaned another room and then she came back to the room. we know now that she didn't clean that other room. she was picking up her things to take to the room where it happened. >> august 1st is the next court date. >yes. christopher and dan, thank you very much much more on this tomorrow on gma and tomorrow night on "nightline." george? to the latest in standoff in washington over raising the nation's debt limit.

7:10 am
triple a status. george? >> jon, they had been hoping on capitol hill to come up with some sort of deal before the markets opened today. the only thing that everyone seems to be accepting that any deal won't include any new tax increase. >> that's the big deal. you have harry reid coming up with a plan for democrats. that he says includes $2.7 trillion in spending cuts over the next ten years and gives the president the debt ceiling increase that takes him all of the way to 2013. republicans are already saying that those -- his plan includes gimmicks and phantom cuts. so the republicans are coming up with their plan, which would include about $1 trillion in cuts now. it would require the president to come back to congress next
7:11 am
year to ask for another debt ceiling increase. >> that's the huge sticking point for the white house. the president has made it clear time and time again that he won't sign a short-term increase. he squashed it at the meeting last night. >> republicans leaders have said that as well. they didn't want any short-term solution to this problem. they changed their tune on this. white house said that speaker boehner needs to stand up and pursue one of the paths that's out there. lot of those same gimmicks in savings from future wars are in the republican budget, the paul ryan budget. george? >> that decision has to happen fast. we're expecting something from speaker boehner this afternoon. george, to that savage shooting in norway that left so many dead at the youth camp.
